This is the most well-known Mexican restaurant in Lisbon area. Their Margueritas are top. However, the food doesn't accomplish the great expectations we create when entering the restaurant. Nice decoration, great atmosphere!

The food it's not that good for the price they charge. The main course was served in small portions... The service is slow. I ordered nachos with chedar cheese.. 5€ of disappointment, and the white chocolate mousse was too sweet. I used to visit that restaurant, but for now long I Won't go there anymore. They seem to have lost... More

The first time I was there, 3 years ago, everything was great: the food, the environment...and the price was fair. After that, I went there to dinner with my boyfriend, and it was raining heavily, with lots of wind. For my surprise, the employee didn't let us enter the restaurant, and left us outside on the rain!! I wouldn't do... More

Authentic Mexican food with a killer view of the Tejo River, If you go weekdays at lunch this a menu deal that will make affordable. If you go at night prices are a little steeper.

For the three times I had dinner there, I had a good time. The food was tasty, the drink was good, and the environment was great. Maybe it may not be "real Mexican food" (but what is in a foreign country?), but I liked it. Maybe a bit too pricey. Note: you may get better served if you arrive at... More

Well situated in Algés, in the outskirts of Lisbon, this place throws good food in a kind of busy atmosphere (it was saturday). If seating outside (best choice in the summer with a bonus view over the Tagus river) forget the romance factor and beware of the cactus. The service it's incredible fast but the food portions are overpriced.

Great atmosphere, excellent food, great to go at sunset, strawberry margaritas are the best! Very good to go with friends and stay there after dinner listening Mexican music!

The food was great. I chose a dish spicy. It came with cheese, and I asked to have it removed. They were fast doing it and they were very nice. The view is great. Recommended.

There is a great view and nice outdoor patio. You will never get a menu. (We literally got up and got our own after about 10 minutes.) You will never be allowed to order food or drinks. If somehow you are able to put your entire body in front of a server and get him to take your oder, while... More
